DO NOT STAY HERE!!! THEY DOUBLE CHARGED our room and will not answer the Phone or EMAIL!! They are awful rooms and management!! Just terrible terrible!! The door to our room wouldn’t not shut all the way so there were moths everywhere!! Floor was caving in and soft and the room was not clean when we got there!! There is potential for a nice cute room on the dock but no updates have caused these rooms to be very bad. The bathroom door would not even open all the way. We stayed in room 5B!! Don’t stay there. I was not expecting 5 star hotel but the bathroom was not even clean when we arrived. We don’t drink coffee but if you do...Bring your own cups. They don’t provide any toiletries at all. Not even soap for the bathroom to wash your hands!!

Entry door sticking hard to open inside had a 3/4” gap between frame. Bed was squeaky. Floor ready to fall through and very uneven when walking on it you can lose your balance and fall especially if one was elderly as my wife and I. Air conditioner was very loud at nights and hard to sleep. Bathroom door would only open half way I had to squeeze myself to enter. Commode was very low to floor okay if you were a very small person. This was the worst room I’ve ever had. Minus -20. We tried to cancel but Expedia said we would lose all of our money. We will not book trips with Expedia again.

The property is an historical "old Florida" building built on a dock, over the water. Perfect for people who love to fish. I was disappointed that the fishing dock area was damaged by a boat that hit it, as it kept us from completely enjoying our experience. The staff in the office were wonderful. The room was clean, but needed some TLC. If you love fishing and history, you might enjoy this place. We will return!
